Felix Auger-Aliassime has now won 12 matches in a row with a chance to win his 3rd consecutive trophy on Sunday.

Carlos Alcaraz, the current world number one, was easily defeated by Auger-Aliassime in two sets, advancing the Canadian to his third straight final. He will compete against Holger Rune tomorrow in a matchup of unbeaten records. As of right now, Auger-Aliassime is 12-0 in his last twelve games, while Rune is 9-0 in his last nine.

“So far it has been very close to perfect [in Basel]" said Auger-Aliassime after the match where he faced his first break point all event long.

"I’ve been serving amazing, not getting broken once yet. There’s still one match to go, but it’s been a fantastic week, [I have] played some great tennis, and again today against the best player in the world. It’s an amazing win, so I’m really happy with my level and hopefully I can go all the way.”

It's been one hell of a run for the Canadian who started his winning streak in Florence and then extended it in Antwerp:

“It’s amazing. I never expected it, when I was in Florence three weeks ago, or after the US Open. I’m just really happy that all my work is coming together."
